Road Cycling Highlight (Segment)
Planned by Tannheimer Tal
The highlight of the cycling season in the Tannheimer Tal is the cycling marathon, which will take place for the 11th time on 7th July 2019. For the marathon, where there are the elite discipline with 220 kilometers and 3500 meters altitude, the lighter alternatives with 131, 92 and new with 58 kilometers, you should bring a good physical fitness.All information about the event can be found here: rad-marathon.atStart and finish are in the Tannheimer Valley, right in the center of Tannheim. From there, the 220-kilometer route leads through the Allgäu and then onto the highest pass road in Germany - the Riedberg Pass at 1407 meters above sea level. With a length of 8.7 kilometers and 620 vertical meters, it has it all. From Obermaiselstein the road is very steep and winding - just a real pass road. That makes him a real challenge. This is followed by a long descent into the Bregenzerwald before the next slope starts from Egg - as it were, into the high mountains.A total of 42 kilometers increase from Egg on you, with the final climb to the Hochtannbergpass over 13 kilometers and 900 meters in altitude with a maximum of 14 percent slope.The 220-kilometer distance continues via Warth into the Lechtal valley to the Gaichtpass, where the last hurdle before the finish line in the Tannheimer Tal awaits you. "The 220-kilometer track is really demanding," confirm former cycling pros Marcel Wüst and Gerrit Glomser, who have been regulars at the cycling marathon for years.
